    I thought they were gonna use random number generator or something similar as stated in the detail of the contest.

    Where is the manual selection coming from, just out of curiosity

    You guys posted this on the 4th of July?  C'mon, man, a bit lame, isn't it?  We aren't all 14 in a basement.  Those of us with families should have been nowhere near a computer on the 4th but with our families.

     

     

    Pretty cruddy deal if you ask me.

    Well it's a random drawing, but they're going to have to sort through to make sure that people with the same IP on an account don't win twice and are banned. That's why, i'm assuming, the key selection process might take up to 24 hours. They want to make sure that legit users get keys this time, and props to them for that.

    I spent the 4th with family and friends and still found a half hour that day to surf the web and enter the contest. Stop being so bitter.

    Are you really attempting a QQ post because you would have missed ONE day if you signed in on the 5th? Thousands or hundreds of thousands of entries and you think ONE DAY, ONE TICKET will matter? Come on man, get real.

    And as someone who has had an account since 2010 this won't be the first time you have seen that happen if you check in often.

    Actually you still could have gotten all 5 tickets if you started logging in on the 5th and did a final log in today before the contest ended. That's 4 days worth of tickets plus your original. Some people logged in every day and got a total of 5 bonus tickets + their initial, however as it says right there in the post, only 4 of the bonus tickets count + your original for a total of 5 tickets. So even if you have 6 tickets, you only get 5 entries.

    I think it's easier to drop the invincible than winning a beta key.

    Well I have all 5 tickets going in to this, so hopefully I get lucky.

    Shame that MMO champion made a thread about obtaining beta keys and some toss pot on there created 550 accounts so he could get a beta key =/
  • PalalexPalalex SPosts: 2Member
    One solution to try to avoid fake accounts would choose the best creative comments related to World of Warcraft instead of these entries. Surely this would hamper the participation of several people who create secondary accounts.

    Most likely they didnt log in each day for those points. Also im not sure how many entries there were at the end I think it was close to 25k when I last looked at it, not sure it it changed much, but that gives everyone with 1 ticket a 1 in 25 chance of winning. Those are decent odds still.

    Welp! Nothing for me. I knew that though with the sheer odds. When it comes to raffles, scratch tickets, lottos ...etc... I never win.

     

    Congrats to all the vet's that get one...

    Me either, unless they really haven't sent them all out yet and are still checking for some.

    Grats to the people that got one, though.

    Me too, been spamming my email and this site all day just hoping its not complete but as most said they received them like 6 hours ago its looking likely.

    Just wish MMORPG could post and confirm so I can get some closure (well until next sweepstake anyway) :)

    well here is a problem and I don't know who I have to send this to or what happened. Whenever i log in I saw i have a pm on my account. When i log in though instead of taking me to the mmorpg.com main page it takes me to the WoD beta key give away page and I cannot go anywhere. If i change the URL to mmorpg.com it defaults to the WoD beta key give away page. If I try to click on my messages it goes to the WoD beta key give away page. No matter what when i log in to my account i CANNOT navigate away from this page no matter what i do or where i go. If I log out of my account i still cannot leave the page and go back to the main page. The only way i can access the mmorpg.com page is if i completely close out of the internet and go back in.  I have tried this from my computer, my laptop, my droid phone and my iPad, all having the same issue...so it is an issue with my account. The way i had to get past this was I had to create a anew account, log in to it, log out of it, then log in to my original account then it let me access my messages. Once I try to go to mmorpg.com while i am in this account i get defaulted bacck to the WoD beta key give away. I think there is something severely wrong here.

    So the codes have already been sent or not ?
  • VolgoreVolgore Posts: 2,207Member Uncommon

    This giveaway is being handled just as poor as all the others on this site -no infos, no confirmations, no winners announced. And no, i'm not mad that i didnt get a key as i quit WoW many years ago. I'm just observing.

     

    And btw: "random draw"? Of course...*cough*

    I don't know if you've looked at the entering page lately, but it does say at the bottom it could take up to 24 hours.
